I would like to refer to Jordan Erickson's comment here.

Why not just use the API? Remove the ".xsl" from any URL in the admin
interface and get the raw XML. The rendered webinterface is just that:
XSLT applied to the API.

As easy as asking nicely.

I can get the IP from the web interface at this location, http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:8000/admin/listclients.xsl?mount=/dhantal, but that means I would have to scrape the web interface which I don't want to do.

I can get listener count but I’m looking for location through the IP. I need to write a php script to gather this information. I have checked the status-Jason.xsl and the xml2json.xsl but neither gives me that information.
